COP27 Podcast Series 1: The key issues and challenges for COP27

This the first podcast in a six-part series ahead of COP 27 in which the OIES addresses the outlook for this important climate conference. In discussion, James Henderson and Mari Luomi give their views on the main issues that are likely to be on the agenda at the conference that is being held on the 6-18 November in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt and what the key challenges will be. The podcast looks back at the major outcomes from the Glasgow hosted COP26 in 2021 and how the political landscape since then has changed the priorities of governments and decision makers.  It also talks about how the recent IPCC reports have framed the climate debate for COP27 and how the objectives of this COP will be based around the concerns of the developing world, especially Africa.
